A Fierce, Loving Resistance
Shut It Down is a veteran activist's guide to direct action and strategic civil disobedience as the most radical and rapid means to social change.

Lisa Fithian’s work as an advocate for civil disobedience and nonviolent direct action has for decades put her on the frontlines of change. Described by Mother Jones as “the nation’s best-known protest consultant,” Fithian has supported countless movements including the Battle of Seattle in 1999, rebuilding and defending communities following Hurricane Katrina, Occupy Wall Street, and the uprisings at Standing Rock, and anti-racism in Ferguson.

For anyone who wants to become more active in resistance or is just feeling overwhelmed or hopeless, Shut It Down offers strategies and actions we can take right now to promote justice and incite change in our own community. More
